Is there life beyond the confines of Apokolips? Scott Free, the future Mister Miracle, is about to find out. But when Big Barda plays a role in his escape, it could spell trouble not just for her potential promotion to the role of the leader of the Female Furies, but to the very existence of the Furies. The women warriors already have too many secrets among them, and if one is exposed, all are exposed. But which of Darkseid's minions holds the true key to their destruction? Could it possibly be Granny Goodness herself?

    If you are not reading Female Furies yet, then I don't know what is wrong with you. If you are a Sociology teacher, you should make this required reading in every single class. Buy a copy and then share it. Buy ten copies and hand them out. Be the person who said, "Oh Furies won the Eisner? I was reading that from the beginning." Read Full Review

    Whether she does or not, this remains an excellent companion piece to Tom Kings Mister Miracle miniseries, and a book that is eminently readable on its own merits. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth May 8, 2019

    Female Furies #4 opens the series up as it reaches its second half. Castellucci is able to fit in her narrative about how women are treated in society while giving the book a new place to go. This issue introduces several new elements to the plot, ones that will be very interesting to see play out as the book heads toward its conclusion. Adriana Melos art seems to get better with every issue. Theres a lot to love about this book. Read Full Review

    The story is strong and pointed. The artwork is pretty spiffy as well. I'm enjoying this book like you wouldn't believe. It's a great take on characters that never really got the spotlight before this. I'm glad to see that this is changing. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer May 9, 2019

    Continuing its trajectory as a Fourth World retelling for the age of the Me Too movement, writer Cecil Casellucci manages to restrain the ham-fisted feminism - for the most part - and tells a solid story about a woman who is sick of being treated like garbage and isn't going to take it anymore.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway May 1, 2019

    The gripping story of professional sexual harassment against the backdrop of Apokolips and the Female Furies has become the boring story of professional sexual harassment. Why the effort to make this an illustrated and colored comic book was made is beyond me. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 2, 2019

    Heading into its second act after last issue's mindlessly sadistic death of original Female Fury Aurelie, this title continues its bizarre exploration of sexism on Apokalips with a strange mix of extreme sexual violence, overly broad satire, and extremely topical references. Read Full Review

    This is getting repetitive. It’s the fourth issue& we don’t have any plot progression. All we get is constantly being reminded, that all male characters are sexist assholes on Apokolips& that women are all weak there. While gender never mattered on Apokolips ( I don’t know how many times I wrote that here now), Me Too Agenda is ridiculously forced on this story& its characters. This time with Barda trying to complain about some male soldiers, but she can’t, because she is a woman& that’s why another male character has to sign the paper. ( Yes it’s as stupid as it sounds. Borrowing middle age law doesn’t make it more interesting& doesn’t fit Apokolips).
    One of the things, that work in this issue are the flashbacks to Bar more

    Are you a Fourth World fan? Then avoid this like the plague. Are you a modern feminist who blames males for all the world's problems? If so, this is what you are looking for.

    It’s just so unsubtle and it makes the whole thing frustrating to read, no matter how much I may agree with the message.

    I think I said all I have to say about this book in last issue's review. This one may be even worse than that. So just read my last review twice, for double the effect.

    Offensive. If this is the future of comics - where they are propaganda screeds of the extreme left - then I want no part of it.
